YUANLIN, Taiwan—On a fresh spring evening, Ye Chan-yuan, chairman of JUI-I Furniture Conceptual Designer, fulfilled a dream. For two years, he has been longing to watch Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company. On April 16 he finally brought all of the 18 members of this family to Shen Yun’s show at Changhua County Performing Hall in Yuanlin. As his wish was fulfilled, he said, “It is really fantastic!”

JUI-I Furniture Conceptual Designer, with a 50-year history, has remained steadfast in the production of traditional handmade fine wood furniture. Valuing high quality in his daily work, Ye Chan-yuan knows taste in art.

He said that two years ago, even though he wanted to see Shen Yun’s performance, he missed the chance because of he was busy working.

But today Ye Chan-yuan’s face was lit up with happiness and contentment.

Shen Yun presents dance and musical performances. Superb vocalists are supported by piano accompaniment, and classical Chinese dances and folk dances are supported by a full orchestra.

Ye Chan-yuan said that every program was wonderful. The most engaging one for him was Little Mischievous Monks, demonstrating the little monks’ ingenuous nature, which was mischievous. It depicted children’s innocence exactly.

Another program that deeply impressed him was Our Story, a story about an inspirational teacher who taught her students to be compassionate.

Ye Chan-yuan added that starting with the folklore of the great Tang Dynasty, Shen Yun displayed the classic Chinese culture with divine dances. How great it was!

His dream finally came true.
